Sunday 29thMay2016

Thiruvindadhai is about 35 Km from Kalpakkam and we left at 5pm in the evening to visit the temple. The deity at the temple is Shri Nitya Kalyaana Perumal, where Lord is holding ShriLakshmi on left lap.

The beautiful temple on East Coast Road belongs to Chola period.  The Lord Sri Varaaha Perumal is seen in the standing position with left leg folded, facing east,resting on Adisheshan. He has Thaayaar KomalaValli seated on His left lap.

The temple is huge and is made of stone all throughout. There was general renovation taking place and the idol is shifted from moolasthana, lots of people coming to the temple and pray.

Also the Lord blesses the unmarried ones for a speedy marriage here. Many unmarried men and women visit this temple to worship the Lord and get married soon. There is a procedure for the unmarried to offer worship here. They are offered a garland to wear and walk around the temple 9 times after which they are given a garland to carry home and keep safely till they are married. They have to bring back the same dried garland back to the temple after marriage along with their spouse. One can see many unmarried youths walking around the temple.
With Mr & Mrs Sundaresan
There is a beautiful 16 pillared stone Mandapam in front of the temple in which all the pillars have wonderful sculptures on them.

After the visit we left the place and drive back of 45minutes to Kalpakkam.
